“Hidden Treasures” refers to a group of talented artists that reside and create their works in our communities and it also describes their original, exquisite creations. It was started back in 1995 to showcase distinguished local artists and artisans and expose their talents to the Lehigh Valley. The tour began with 4 studios and 16 artists with a vision to create a new and unique shopping experience with a more personal touch. In a more relaxed setting, customers have the ability to actually talk to the artists about their art and in many studios see the work being created through demonstrations.
The tour has grown over the years and now has 7 studios stretching from Bethlehem to Kutztown. Each studio has several artists and today there are 29 artists. Each artist goes through a jury process to be sure that their art is unique and of high quality. Included are artists making pottery, fused and stained glass, carved and turned wood, hand hammered aluminum, porcelain, jewelry, hand painted silk, hand knitting and weaving and much more!
Please join us and find that perfect hand crafted gift that will be cherished for years to come.
